Just a quick little post here.
I’ve been working on the way the site looks a little bit. I put in some menus up top to filter my posts by their categories, so if you’re looking for a setting or an adventure it’s just a button click to what you seek. I’m also messing around with the theme and stuff. Let me know what you think, will you?
I also decided to register a personal domain, rpcrpg.com (roleplaycraft.com was sadly taken by a minecraft server) so I can better mess with all that. Anyway, boring stuff.
I’m currently in the process of developing and expanding my Hollypond Vale adventure series into a more complete adventure, more along the lines of the sandbox style of Wine for Idleberry. You might notice that I hid those posts for this reason. I’d like to make this adventure into a downloadable PDF, either for free or as a self-published product through a site like DriveThruRPG. It’s a pretty big endeavor, one that I’m not exactly prepared for. I’m not really sure what program to even use to begin making a role playing book product. Is there something you guys can recommend? I know a lot of you have released some very spiffy PDFs so I’m hoping to learn your secrets. I’m also hoping to avoid photoshop.
If I do go the self-publish and sell route (I’m not sure at all at the moment), then I intend on commissioning art for it. I am blessed to know some great artists, and they will hopefully be glad to be paid to make some art. It really depends on the quality of the adventure itself. If I feel it doesn’t meet the standard of work of something you’d find self-published on a site like DriveThruRPG then I’ll just make a plain PDF and release it for free on here. We shall see!
Anyway, any wisdom or advice you might have for me would be one hundred percent appreciated. Thanks!
